I'd like to add:DPS - Can also mean Deaths per Session. As in, "My Enchanter friend pulls much more DPS than my troubadour friend."

<DIV>Don't forget:</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV><FONT color=#99ffff><STRONG>Fast AFK</STRONG> </FONT>- where as the healer or tank goes away from the keyboard in the middle of a very dangerous area promising to be back really fast.  In reality they are gone for 5-10 minutes in which they consider fast.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV><FONT color=#33ccff>Autofollow -<FONT color=#ffffff> where as a player who goes AFK can follow someone around.  They normally autofollow the puller which in turns causes undo aggro whiping out the group, they then mysteriosly go linkdead, hence saving them from mass embarrassment.  This also used to gain experience while they are watching their favorite episode of Star Trek in the other room.</FONT></FONT></DIV><p>Message Edited by Brickyard on <span class=date_text>07-28-2005</span> <span class=time_text>04:48 AM</span>

Also: GTG - "Good To Go" An reply often miscounted by the MAIN TANK whereby one group member (usually the healer) is not actually Good to Go, resulting in XP DEPT. <div></div>
